Code literacy


Welcome, and thank you for taking part in this survey! We will ask you about your personal experiences with code literacy in your work and/or studies. Filling out the survey will take you approximately 15 minutes.


The purpose of this survey is to map the different forms of code literacy across humanities disciplines. With this survey, we aim to create a reliable dataset that shows what the barriers are to code literacy, what people's opinions are about it, and how it can be improved across different fields in the Digital Humanities community. The results of this study will be used for academic research only. For more background information, see our coding literacy introduction document.


Your participation in this research study is voluntary. You may choose not to participate, or withdraw at any time prior to submission, in which case the answers you have already given will not be stored. If you decide to participate in this research survey, you agree that some (parts) of your answers may be quoted by us in a way that does not identify you. 

This survey has been reviewed according to the GDPR and the Utrecht University guidelines for research involving human subjects. Your responses will be confidential and we do not collect identifying information such as your name, email address, or IP address. At the end of the survey, you are asked whether you are interested in a follow-up interview. If you respond positively, you are asked to leave your contact details. This information will be kept confidential and used only to contact you for the interview. Only authors of the survey will have access to these details. The survey's data is stored in a password protected electronic format to which only authors of the survey have access. The results of this study will be used for scholarly purposes only. You will find our Research Data Management plan here.


The survey is part of an international research project about code literacy across Digital Humanities scholarship. If you have any questions about the research study, please contact us at code-lit@protonmail.com.
